Emmett Looman
Class of 2024 Valedictorian

Emmett Looman

 

Emmett joined CHCA as a freshman and is deeply grateful for the variety of growth opportunities provided to him by the school and community. Making the most of CHCA’s academics and well-rounded curriculum, he took 12 AP courses, enjoying classes from AP Calculus and English to Ceramics and Culinary. As an AP Scholar with Distinction, he has tested with perfect “5s” on all seven scored tests to date.

Emmett has also worked towards an array of other academic awards, including Seals of Biliteracy in Spanish at both the State and Global levels, a perfect score on the ACT, a near-perfect score on the SAT, and five Best in Class awards at CHCA. He is a National Merit Scholar receiving a scholarship from Johnson & Johnson.

In continued pursuit of his love of learning, Emmett filled his senior year with a challenging course load of classes at CHCA as well as the University of Cincinnati, completing several collegiate courses in mathematics and physics. Outside of the classroom, Emmett played four years of varsity tennis (Captain), served as Treasurer of the National Honor Society, and founded the CHCA Table Tennis Club.

At Wheels Ministry, both Emmett’s favorite intersession program and service opportunity, he witnessed the life-changing impact of donated vehicles as well as reaffirmed his interest in vehicles, physics, and work combining one’s mind and hands. Emmett plans to attend the University of Cincinnati this fall as a Cincinnatus Scholar, studying Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science.

Will Treadway
Class of 2024 Salutatorian

William Treadway

 

Will was homeschooled through seventh grade and began attending CHCA in eighth grade. He has a deep love of nature, particularly of trees, which inspired him to found a Native Tree service group in eighth grade. Because of his efforts, more than 400 native trees have been distributed throughout the Cincinnati area. Will has been an Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalist since his junior year and has taken multiple tree classes from the International Society of Arboriculture as well as learning botany at Ohio State University’s Stone Labs. He also applied to the Arbor Day Foundation and achieved Tree Campus K-12 status for CHCA’s north campus—a national honor for the school—and spent last summer working for local arborist Kevin Lester. Will’s love of the natural world partially stems from being a lifelong Boy Scout. He is a member of the Order of the Arrow and is expecting to achieve his Eagle Scout rank in June 2024.

Will’s passion for trees is only matched by his love of music. He is an avid piano player and has played the double bass for CHCA’s Sinfonietta for the last four years. He also enjoys playing double bass for his church’s worship team. He recently composed his first piece for strings, entitled Dido, which was debuted by the CHCA Sinfonietta.

Will is an AP Scholar with Distinction, having taken 11 AP courses, and has been an active member of the CHCA Academic Team for the last three years. He is also a writer and can frequently be found reading and writing poetry. He has an interest in Latin, independently studying Botanical Latin with Mr. Compton, and was also the recipient of the Ohio State Seal of Biliteracy award.

Will plans to attend Yale University in the fall, where he will major in Environmental Studies with a focus on Urban Forestry.
